How To Bet On Oklahoma West Virginia – Mountaineers In Tough To Break Skid Against No. 12 Sooners

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/14/2012 5:42:31 PM

It is scary to think now that at one point the West Virginia Mountaineers were in the conversation for BCS Championship game hopefuls, with quarterback Geno Smith a leading Heisman trophy candidate. A lot has changed since that point in the season, and after four-straight losses the Mountaineers are simply aiming to finish their Big 12 season on a strong note in order to clinch a sports betting record better than .500. Next up for West Virginia is a home date against the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners, against whom they will look to play the spoiler role.

College Football Betting Line: Oklahoma -11

The Sooners have endured their own share of disappointment with losses to Kansas State and Notre Dame that will keep them out of the discussion for a national title shot, but they are still just one game back of the Wildcats in the Big 12 with three games to go.

Oklahoma ranks in the top-25 in both points scored and points allowed, and have been very consistent in three-straight road wins this season. The Sooners have won those games by an average of 15 points, an will look to finish strong with two of their final three away from Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Senior quarterback Landry Jones is coming off another impressive performance after throwing for 277 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s win over Baylor, and has now thrown for 2,681 yards and 18 scores this season. The Sooners have also liked what they have seen from junior running back Damien Williams of late, including 99 yards and two scores a week ago.

After opening the season on a record-scoring pace, the Mountaineers’ offense has tailed off somewhat and has not been able to make up for a defense that has allowed at least 39 points in six-straight games. Smith’s production has dipped as well after throwing 24 touchdowns in five-straight wins, as he has thrown just seven over four-straight losses as well as throwing his first three interceptions. That hasn’t been nearly good enough for a team that ranks 121st in the nation in points allowed this season with an average of 41.4 points against per game, and won’t bode well against a very complete Oklahoma team.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Smith has been a victim of unfair pressure all season after a fast start, and hasn’t been able to do nearly enough to make up for one of the worst defense’s in the Big 12. That defense will be in tough again this week against Jones and a talented Sooners’ pass attack, which should have no problem covering the online betting spread as long as their defense can make a couple of key stops.
